Nicole by OPI and Dove Chocolate, bring on the chocolate! Swatches and Review

Yep, I received in the mail nail polish and dark chocolate.  I was excited about the colors, and my family was more excited about the chocolate, win-win for everyone!

Left to Right: Nicole by OPI "Promises In The Dark" and "Better After Dark"

Nicole by OPI "Promises In The Dark"
2 coats, no top coat

"Promises In The Dark" is a gorgeous dark chocolate cream.  Applied well in two coats and dried to a nice glossy shine. 

Nicole by OPI "Better After Dark"
2 coats, no top coat

"Better After Dark" is a smooth milk chocolate with added pink shimmer.  The shimmer is noticeable in the bottle and on the nail. Very pretty and feminine with the added shimmer. Covered well in two coats and dried to a nice shine. 

Overall, I like the concept for both, but "Promises In The Dark" is my favorite. You can't go wrong with a nice deep chocolate brown. 

If you really like these colors you can try and win your won bottles...keep reading! :)
